Well, it's done. Lessons learned and experience gained.

I learned :
You should always level out the top of your cake.
Thicker buttercream makes for a smoother fondant.
Fondant has to be thicker than I think it should be or it rips.
Dowels and supports are important...even when your cake is kinda short.

I think it turned out really well and aside from the sagging side and the slightly bumpy fondant, I am really proud of it. Second cake done. And I'm ready to start another! I've been bitten by the cake bug!!
